Yup; but hey, she did select mine, 9/19/70, so that's one mark in her favor...

I saw she had yer back, Tell, so I did give her points for that. It's the second half of the list that's certainly not brilliant.

I am sure someone's mentioned it here prior; the notion that "less critical casual fans" or maybe even "band wagon/touch head fans" give too much of a pass to the DEAD in the last 15 yrs...perhaps in that spirit, these lists might be constructed w an eye toward looking for the good across the entire 30 yr time span...dunno, but it might be a motivation for some that prepare such things.

Only makes us cringe, eh?

We Forumites are made of sterner stuff--we certainly don't pull any punches on evaluations of the entire catalogue.

Hmmm, I was expecting you to jump (ahem) on that comment by Reade about "she had yer back"...

We're all slowing down.

There were MUCH better late Dark Stars she could have chosen. Miami 89 is certainly a great one, but how about 3/29/90 with Branford? 7/12/90? 9/20/90? 12/31/90 (again with Branford)? See a pattern here?

Nothing after 1989?

They didn't think Green Book should have won an Oscar?

I fully support your idea of a true winner.

I'd take 7/13/84 DS over any of the post coma versions...but I'm still not silly enough to think it rates up there with any of the 68-74 versions just because I was there and it blew my mind - that and the purple gels. What a way to walk out of a show...I love the long pause before the audience starts to cheer at the end.

I found almost all of the '89 onward versions to be just a little bit more than flute/tinkle keys space with massive amounts of delay and echo.

A nice new aud version: https://archive.org/details/gd1984-07-13.145333.fob.sony.ecm150.keeler.miller.noel.t-flac16/gd84-07-13.s2t12.flac
